Wax Additive Market Forecast and CAGR

As per the recent research by Fact.MR, wax additive market is anticipated to witness steady growth at 4% CAGR during 2021-2031. Demand for these additives will witness impactful recovery in the short term, with an optimistic growth outlook in the long run.

The market is expected to observe significant development over the forecast period attributable to the diversified use of the item in applications like coatings, printing, and rubber processing. Different products, like leather, textile, and cosmetics, show the product’s consumption as an ingredient in their manufacturing processes. Expanding interest for wax additives inferable from their predominant properties, like great water repellency, non-toxicity, and exceptional chemical resistance is relied upon to direct the market development over the forecast period.

What is Driving Demand for Wax Additive?

The demand for wax additives arises from multiple sectors such as the construction and automotive industry. Its anti-block property makes it important for items that are coated, dried, and immediately stacked, rolled up for shipment or storage. Its slip property makes it essential for inks, primers and OPV's, foil coatings, paper, film, and metal coatings.

The construction industry drives the demand for the product as it is used as floor polish, architectural coatings and even for wood coatings owing to its water-resistance characteristic.

The demand for wax additives, especially from modern car interiors in the automobile industry is on the rise. Coatings with a soft feeling are applied on plastic substrates such as instrument panels and door handle to convey a "leather-like touch", and give a feeling of luxury.

Owing to the aforementioned factors, the market is poised to grow at a healthy CAGR over the forecast period of 2021-2031.

Know More Details About the Report

Covid-19 Impact on Global Wax Additive Market

Owing to the disruption in the supply chain, practically all industrial facilities throughout the world have had to shut down due to the pandemic, which has prohibited the procurement of raw materials essential for the production of wax additives. Because most construction sites where it was utilised as a floor polish or metal cover were shut down, demand for the product fell. During the pandemic, production in the automobile industry came to a halt, and as a result, demand for products in this area plummeted as well.

However, since government officials began taking steps to stop the virus from spreading, the situation has improved. As operations around the world regained pace in the second quarter of 2021, demand for the product gradually improved.

The Asia Pacific Wax Additive Market Geographical Outlook

Asia Pacific region is expected to show a higher demand growth rate for wax additives due to the existence of numerous end-use manufacturers and consumers in the region. Increased operation of automotive, construction, and aerospace industries are expected to drive up the demand for the product.

The demand for a large and diverse number of automotive parts and components, such as bodies, interiors, chassis, exteriors, powertrains, seating, electronics, mirrors, roof systems, closures, and modules, is growing with the rising electric vehicle production in countries like China, Korea, and India, where wax additives are used as a coating to give them a luxurious finish.

Additionally, the steady growth of plastic compounds bottle producers, packaging material formulators, and automobile component manufacturers is expected to drive up the demand in the Asia Pacific region.
